If you need a book, CD or DVD that is already checked out, you have options for getting it. If you need the item quickly, you can recall it. If you have more time, you can place a hold on it.
When you recall an item, the patron who has the item is notified that the item has been recalled and must be returned. The item will be due ten days after the recall was placed. An item must be checked out for a minimum of two weeks before it can be recalled. You have ten days to pick up the item before it is returned to the stacks.
